Corey Graham

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) – Corey Graham is coming home. The Turner-Carroll High School grad agreed to terms tonight on a four-year contract with the Buffalo Bills.

Graham, a cornerback, registered 74 tackles and a career-high four interceptions last season with the Ravens. He will beef up a position that had serious depth issues last season. When injuries hit starters Stephon Gilmore and Leodis McKelvin, safety Aaron Williams was forced to return to his old position at corner.

Graham is also a standout special teams player, making the Pro Bowl in 2011 with Chicago.

“Early in the free agency process, we identified Corey Graham as a player who would help our football team,” Bills GM Doug Whaley said in a press release tonight. “Graham is a smart, physical and tough cornerback who has had success with both the Chicago Bears and Baltimore Ravens. He is playmaker defensively and on special teams. We believe he will help the Buffalo Bills improve in both areas in the years to come.”
